В Киеве

Original 16 mm film is hard to get and very expensive, so I always cut the last piece of a film to 16 mm. Easy, and enough for 8 negs.
135 Gives 1 strip, 120 even easier,  gives three.

PS Unsharp Silberra? No - I just didn't focus, my fault.

Troubles in Russia

 Noo - the police were very helpful, the soup (as always) very tasteful. But the weather was very dark,
 I underestimated that.
And then there was the MIR 10A - too bulky. I don't like a camerastrap around my neck,
I put my three cameras in my pockets, 10A was too heavy. (P 1+2)

So I took most pics with the (scratched) ЛОМО 135М. (P 3-6)

Back-up camera:

The 2017 Christmas Lecture

 - and there's no
 just use your eyes.

The big man, obviously loved,

the old woman,
enjoying Chopins second nocturne.

Eternal friendship

And Düsseldorf now.

Half frame Чайка

18x24 Half frame.

I think it's best for small groups like these,
not for the big landscapes.

Чайка-II performs vèry well with the
28mm Индустар-69,
Fuji200 in vèry tired Colortec.

Yes of course I also was in Germany.
With some of the big names:
third Reich LEITZ and the
BRD ZEISS (left).

Look below for Russia, Italy and the Netherlands

And (see posts below) of course I made some pics in the Netherlands; with the 1928 Brownie 116, and the fifties Colorsnap and the Argus + Cintar.
